This is the problem with curses: it's the common denominator, and as a
result is rather awful. I honestly think a true 'suckless editor' has
to drop curses in favour of actually being able to interact with
keyboard events, instead of just reading a stream of escape sequences.
That doesn't really help with sandy, admittedly, but I think it's
worth keeping in mind.
